Sitting Bull and the Meadowlark

Animals have been part of early and ancient cultures since the beginnings of people on earth.
Birds were often a part of American Indian life and culture. Long before Wyoming (1927) and Nebraska, Montana, Kansas, Oregon and North Dakota made the Meadowlark their state bird, Indians referred to it as the Sioux bird.

Sitting Bull loved all wild creatures but held the bird special often making up songs about them and giving birds credit for saving his life more than once.
